@ Cu Yes I know it is an D, but what I saw it is as the Phil FS-101strike.
Reason? No Idea, maybe an Phil Die was ship in D? and for the period nothing impossible.
Cu, we already know that not all the DD are single Die. What I know are 1,2 or 3. So if was three and Phil use 2 and one ship in D, mean that the D strike Observe in this case must have same Observe markers. Me I never look for other side markers because is nonsense. Cause it is because any time during the strike you can change the other Die. (Ex: I strike with one hammer 100 coins but after those 100 I change the Anvil, thing happened in the minting process, so no more same markers for the same Hammer).
IMHO, this coin must be see in hand with at list one example of the Phil FS-101 and analyze the Observe deign for same small variations. Other thing it is the MM. Must be analyze to see for which strikes period it is. The MM was punch by hand by an ex goldsmith, and will have the same characteristic of his punch on the coins.
This was one of my discussions with Wex many years ago, and him states that it is logic, but the peoples like to look for those markers.
